about john:

Dr. Mecikalski received his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Wisconsin--Madison in August 1999. His major areas of interest include dynamics of scale interaction within convectively driven weather systems, tropical meteorology, data assimilation and numerical modeling, regional energy budget estimations, and assessing the atmospheric boundary layer and convection using remote sensing technologies. Presently his research is focused on convective storm scale 0-6 hour nowcasting using satellite data, with an emphasis on process-based research that combines satellite, radar and lightning observations. He also works to assimilate dual polarimetric data within cloud resolving models.
